88750iL is an unknown quantity at this point
Hey all,
im a newbie.
Well i have a 1988 750iL and my car starts oveheating really bad, i found out a hose was broken in the front and it was leaking water. Could this be it?

My second Question: Where is the Battery located?

My last question is; My car makes a loud beeping niose every minute or so is this normal, it gets quite anoying, or could it be becasue it was over-heating?

Thanks,
Danny

The battery should be located under the rear seat on the passengers side.

Take care

Bear is an unknown quantity at this point
Correct the battery is under the left rear passenger side seat cushion and a bear to get the cushion back in.

Overheating, is it all of the time, at speed, in traffic, etc. If she overheats in traffic but is OK on the road, then I woul suspect the fan clutch.

If you email me I will send along some OBC tips as well as my way to remove/reinstall the rear seat cushion/s.

check your relays....that problem with the ignition happened to me. and it was a complete pain inthe ass. relays arent cheap. also check ur alarm system if you have one. that may also be causing a problem. and when u switch relays make sure u put the right ones in the right place....that also happened to me
